Jones, 26, played his college ball at Hill College and New Mexico State from 2014-18 before going undrafted. He has primarily played in the G League since going pro, spending time with the South Bay Lakers, Wisconsin Herd, and Delaware Blue Coats from 2018-21. He also had a brief stint at the NBA level with the Lakers, appearing in six games with Los Angeles at the end of the 2018/19 season.
Jones’ best season came in 2019/20, when he averaged a double-double (10.8 PPG, 12.1 RPG) in 42 games (30.4 MPG) for the Herd, Milwaukee’s G League affiliate. He earned a spot on the All-NBAGL Third Team that year.
The Bucks presumably envision Jones returning to the Herd for the 2021/22 season. Assuming his deal contains Exhibit 10 language, he’ll receive a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least 60 days with Wisconsin after he’s waived by Milwaukee.
